Ljubljanica River Exhibition

Stroll through different periods of Vrhnika's history, from prehistoric times to the present day ...

Vrhnika has a long and important history and a large part of it is attached to the River of Seven Names, Ljubljanica. Learn the story of the town where the oldest known wooden wheel in the world was found, old as 5,200 years. The town where, in Ljubljanica, one of the longest logboats in Europe was discovered, dating back to Roman times. The exhibition will impress you and you'll be wowed by the mosaic wall, which exhibits a significant part of the famous Potočnik Family Collection (archeological findings from Ljubljanica).

Take a journey from the old times to the present day, when Vrhnika is one of the 'greenest' municipalities in the country and when it attracts its visitors with numerous opportunities to discover both nature and culture here, where the Marsh and the Karst region meet.

The exhibition is modern and interactive; it will satisfy different tastes. Older and younger visitors. Larger crowds and professionals. Be inspired by stories of Vrhnika's past as well as present.
